Sadly, it seems like AD might have a serious lack of tanks AND healers:
According to a survey by TamrielFoundy, less than 10% of AD players want to play Dragon Knight and less than 20% Templar. This is why I'll roll a Khajit Dragon Knight - easy grouping .
Will the Khajit be the tanky ones in AD?
This piece of info on the official ESO site looks like a hint that the Woodelfs will get our sweet, sweet tanking racials :F
"Wood Elves are experts at the art of defense. They are also gifted archers"
But perhaps you know something I don't?
BTW thanks for the link. I had not read that yet.
"I think a large portion of this aversion may stem from “Dragonknights” being associated with Nords in the minds of many fans, despite their availability to all 3 alliances. The most recent TES installment of Skyrim made the tension between Altmer and Nords particularly manifest, so for some Aldmeri players, choosing the Dragonknight class feel like a bit of a betrayal."
quote from that site you linked.
I think its more likely that many players have similar feelings as me about tanking as the tiny race, and therefore avoid AD altogether. I'd personally like my character to look like he could do the part (so basicly anything other then a Woodelf in the TES universe)
